Be careful when buying the Hoodman clear LCD cover for the D1/D1H/D1x as many photographers have complained that this cover fits snugly on their D1, but keeps popping off their D1H/D1x. It must be a design problem that needs attention, as the Nikon BM-1 LCD cover does not have this problem on any of the three cameras. The BM-1 is not as transparent as the Hoodman version though, so you may want to consider Hoodskins from Hoodman instead.
Thanks for the feedback. I just bought the Hoodman cover from a store (not ebay) it looks different thsan the one on ebay so it might be a newer model. It fits just as snug as the original D1X cover and is very nice.

You do have to take it off at times to clean under it, it is not dust proof. Syl Z.
